Tens machine hire
Hire of a TENS machine from 37 weeks until your baby is born.
TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. The machine comes to you professionally cleaned with an antiviral and antibacterial solution with new batteries and a set of electrode pads which stick onto to your lower back. It delivers an electrical impulse which can reduce pain sensations and help your body produce its own antural endorphins. A labour TENS machine has a boost button which can be used during contractions. TENS cannot be used while you are in the pool, but is a wonderful distraction technique if you choose to not use water or for early labour while waiting for it to fill. Can also be used for afterpains! There are many choices on the market - we prefer this one for absolute simplicity of use while still remaining completely functional and effective.
